Hey there! I love searching for colleges. I love everything about the process. There are so many options and that can be really daunting, but I love the idea of it. Here are some good things to figure out while starting your college list:
So my biggest advice: take a list of stuff that you want from a school and arrange them from most to least important. Figure out what you need from a college, what you want, and what you’re maybe willing to compromise on. Also talk to your parents about what’s important to them in a school and go from there! Try using college board’s search engine and then research a college’s website to see if you like it. Also try talking to your guidance counselor about specific schools, because they might know something about them. Good luck :)
OR MAYBE we could stop acting like rightfully bitter reactions to centuries of oppression are at all comparable to that oppression itself :~)
Or maybe we could stop calling discriminating against someone else “rightful” just because you’re more oppressed than them
OR MAYBE we could stop acting as though a minority person snapping at their oppressor over the internet is remotely similiar to fearing for your life on a daily basis!!!! sometimes people are rude. that’s not the same as systematic murder. crazy, i know, take ur time,
Because being of the same skin color/gender/sexuality of their oppressor automatically means that they oppress them. That’s totally not generalization at all.
Unfortunately, society does not see everyone as equal. However, that does not make what you are defending okay.
Also, it’s funny how you assume my skin color/gender/sexuality simply because I disagree with your viewpoint.
Don’t get me wrong though, straight white males who say that straight white males are the most misunderstood and oppressed people on earth are also idiots.
Because I have yet to meet a white/straight/cis/male person that has NEVER said something offensive about POC/queer/trans/female people. People in oppressive groups oppress in big ways and small ways whether they intend to or not. I am defending my right, as a queer girl living in a queerphobic part of the world, to occasionally make dumb generalizations about the group that oppresses me as a coping mechanism.
Whether or not something contributes to the murder and opression of a minority group matters. A gay girl on the internet dealing with her inner turmoil at the expense of a straight person’s self-centeredness is not the same as a gay girl wondering if she’s going to be killed for who she is. Sure, saying rude things is rude. You got me there. But it’s not the same as contributing to the rape, murder, and oppression of millions of people. Acting as though racism and sexism and homophobia are merely examples of ‘rudeness’ is an incredibly dangerous mindset to have.
